Processed Meat Warning

Sausage is a processed food, and processed meat is preserved by smoking, curing, salting, or adding chemical preservatives.
The amount of salt used in such products is very high and consistent use will have harmful health effects, said Parvin Afshar, member of Iranian Nutrition Society.
Regular consumption of sausages and processed food can lead to cardiovascular problems, renal diseases, osteoporosis and cancer, IRNA reported.
Also preservatives such as nitrite and nitrate are harmful and their excessive consumption through food will lead to development of different types of cancer.
It’s best to limit processed meat and instead opt for lean, fresh meat and poultry.
